The Bay of Plenty is a large basin stretching inland for nearly 260 kilometres (160 miles) of coast and almost continuous white sandy beaches. There are three main urban centres, all within about an hour’s drive of each other - Tauranga with a population of around 115,000, Rotorua (65,000) and Whakatane (33,000). The region is growing fast, particularly Tauranga which has grown by around 25% since 2001.
It was named in 1769 by Captain James Cook who found the people were generous and there were lots of fish, timber and other supplies. Tauranga is New Zealand’s fifth largest city. It sits right on the water’s edge and is well-known for its blue skies, warm climate, sparkling harbour and relaxed lifestyle.
